SPOT COLORING WITH FALLING FLOWERS

Although this technique has been around for a while, this is my first! So hard for me to leave my stamping comfort zone. Spot coloring reminds me of the adult coloring books. In fact, we could start an "Adult Coloring Card" fad that would be so fun. Just stamp with black Staz-On and include markers. Great idea for a kid's birthday party. Anyway, I had a blast making these two cards:


I used the Falling Flowers stamp set and Staz-on ink to create these cards. I stamped on a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock in which a 2 3/4" by 4" piece of cardstock was placed on top and centered. This leaves about a 1" border all the way around your card to stamp on. Just use a tiny bit of adhesive to hold the top piece in place until your stamping is completed. 


I stamped the big flower first, make a mask, and then stamped on the leaves. The little flower and dot-things or seed-things (whatever you call them, lol) were stamped in places that needed filling. If someone know the name of the dot-things, please let me know! 


I colored the flowers on both cards with a Blender Pen using the ink color Daffodil Delight. The leaves were colored with Mint Macaron and the dot-things with Calypso Coral. Once colored the way you want, back the smaller piece with a little bit of black cardstock and use dimensionals to pop it up. I embellished with plain pearls on the one card and pearls colored with a black sharpie on the other.


I love the Mint Macaron ribbon so much that I included it in the pictures! The "you" was die cut from the "Hello You Thinlits" and "amaze me" from "Thoughtful Banners.  See the supply list below.
